Teck “Learning from Loss”

Teck created a computer-animated video of last years death at Fording River of an Alberta based contractor from Lundbreck.

Pat Dwyer died while working at Teck’s Fording River mine when the floating excavator he was operating upset in a tailings pond.

The educational video highlights the incident in order to prevent such another accident of this type.

Workplace injuries and deaths at Teck unfortunately happen, here are three such incidents from the past year:

Fording River Worker Dies

Serious Incident at Greenhills Operations

Teck Fatality at Elkview Operations

“Nothing is more important than the safety of our employees and contractors and we are committed to working to continually strengthen our safety measures,” said Nic Milligan, Teck’s Manager of Social Responsibility.
